Win a Breville Juice Fountain Plus! A Giveaway From Punchtab.
July 9, 2012

I am so excited about this giveaway.

I have a tendency to exaggerate nearly everything. When I write my blog, I try to resist this proclivity toward hyperbole; after all, if I tell you guys that everything’s delicious and amazing, you’ll start to wonder (and rightly so) whether I’m being overly charitable. When it comes to fruit and vegetable juice, however, I have no problem whatsoever pulling out my most over-the-top praise. Fresh fruit and vegetable juice is amazing, and today, I’m giving you a chance to make it at home with your very own Breville Juice Fountain plus–a giveaway courtesy of the amazing folks at PunchTab!!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ve seen some of my favorite juice creations, and heard all about how much I value these glasses of liquid nutrition.

I discovered juicing shortly after I discovered raw foods. I was already eating a nutrient dense, vegetable-rich diet. But, after years of food restriction, IBS-C, and sluggish elimination, the flood of hydration and nutrition that came along with fresh green juices was nothing short of transformative for me. I felt a tremendous change when I started juicing: more energy, better digestion, and–though there’s absolutely no way to validate this–a number of people started to comment on my cheeks being rosier. Beyond all that, I just loved the taste of fruit and vegetable juices, and soon found myself craving them nearly all the time!

Today, I have a lot less time to make juice (thank goodness for Sweetpress!), but my love affair with fresh juices continues. No, I don’t think that juice is a suitable or sustainable replacement for food, which is why I don’t fast (or personally recommend fasting). But I do turn to juices whenever I feel that I need a boost, a pick-me-up, or a little flood of micronutrients. I think of juices as a kind of liquid supplement, and a delicious supplement at that.

I’m constantly asked about what kind of juicer I own. Truth is, I’ve had the same juicer for about five years, and it’s still giving me delicious elixirs. It’s the Breville Juice Fountain plus–a simple, two speed centrifugal juicer–and I absolutely love it. It’s not the fanciest juicer on the market, but it’s ideal for the average home juice lover. Fruits and vegetables go through seamlessly, and greens are fine if you bunch them up a bit! It’s efficient, easy to clean, and easy to use.

Which is why I am so delighted that the folks at PunchTab–a loyalty platform dedicated to giving blog readers rewards in the form of giveaways and promotions–are offering one lucky Choosing Raw reader his or her very own Breville Juicer. Punchtab contacted me last week asking if I’d be interested in reviewing a product. I said I’d be thrilled! When they asked what product came to mind, I immediately thought of a juicer: what better gift to share with CR readers than an item I use so often myself! The PunchTab company agreed, walked me through the giveaway process, and today, I’m pleased to share a chance to win with you. Of all the giveaways I’ve hosted, this one feels really special to me: it’s a way to show you all exactly how beneficial and life changing the gift of green juice can be.

You can sign in via email or Facebook, and as you’ll see, you get individual extra entries for following me on Twitter, liking CR on Facebook, tweeting the giveaway, visiting my Pinterest page, and commenting on this post to let me know what the first juice you hope to make with your new juicer will be!! If you don’t see the entry box, it simply means that the PunchTab server is momentarily busy; visit back in a second!

I sincerely look forward to giving one of my readers the gift of juice. Good luck to you all! Now, ready, set…Punch!

  4. My wife and I are looking at doing a juice cleanse, so the first juice we make will probably be something with kale and apples. In fact, it may just be kale and apples. Maybe kale, apple, ginger, and cucumber? How does that sound?

  5. Something with apple, spinach, carrot. Love juicing and it’s been a while b/c I need a good juicer 🙂

  6. Thinking I’ll juice some of the cucumbers, kale and cilantro from my garden 😀 Then add some lemon and apple for a hint of sweetness. Soooo perfect for summer!

  9. A veggie juice–kale, arugula, beets, carrots, lemon, ginger, cucumber — these are in my frig today!

  10. Hmmm….sooo many I want to try…I think Kale, lemon juice, cucumbers, some grapes and coconut water. The garden drink!

  11. Oooh, there would be so many wonderful possibilities. Perhaps something with apple and ginger, that sounds so refreshing right now!

  12. I have never juiced before, but I have been thinking that I would like to start if I had the right equipment.

  13. I’d probably make something classic, like kale/apple/lemon/ginger first, and then experiment with more daring combinations!

  14. I’ve been wanting to try pear, honeydew, and carrot. I think it’ll have a very mellow taste.

  15. I will make a carrot and ginger juice, is’s delish! Then use the pulp for crackers!

  16. Since my current juicer does not do well with hard-skinned veggies like carrots and cucumbers, I’m going to make a juice chock full of those ones!

  17. Make a yummy green smoothie that I hear so much about! Love to incorporate them into my life and the lives of my Boys 🙂

  18. I’m not sure, it depends on what I have. I suspect it might be a carrot-apple drink since those two are always in the house!

  19. My first juice might be a mixed fruit juice. Not sure what yet, not sure what can be juiced! Maybe something with apples. Don’t know. I’ll have to check recipes to figure it out!!!

  20. cucumber, parsley, strawberry and watermelon juice

    thank you for this wonderful giveaway-it was fun reading all the different juices

    pjames330 at aol dot com

  21. Definitely something with beets – they are so hard to incorporate into a smoothie, but with a juicer I could enjoy their juice all the time! Beet, carrot, ginger and green apple. Maybe some parsley too.

  22. The first juice I am going to make will be made with the freshest ingredients in season at the farmers market 😉

  23. I would love to make a pineapple-carrot juice. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway 🙂

  24. Carrot Juice ! Or maybe a combination of my two veggy favorites – Carrot & Spinach Juice!

  25. I will juice whatever veggies I have in the fridge when it arrives and add some lemon & a little fruit for sweetness. So a little of this and a little of that until it tastes good!

  26. Some sort of sweet green drink, perhaps with kale and spinach. Not sure yet, need to start researching recipes!

  27. Id like to make Pizza in a glass with Tomato, Basil, Bell Pepper, Parsley, Garlic and jalapenos for a kick

    1.5 Cup Blueberries
    .5 Grapefruit
    15 Red/Purple Grapes!
    Sounds sooo good!

  29. My first juice would be a wild blueberry organic green medley with chia seeds and organic green apple peels from my local vegetable growers.

  30. I’m going to make a green juice with tons of kale, ginger, cucumber and golden beets!! 😀

  31. I would juice what jack lalanne and his wife did on their commercials, apple, carrot, strawberries, watermelon and spinach, yummmmmeee!

  32. My husband and I began juicing a few months ago to improve our health and lose weight. So far my husband has lost 29 pounds, I have lost 45 pounds, and we both have the lowest blood pressure and cholesterol counts we have seen in a very long while. Our favorite juice is green apple, green pear, cucumber, kale, celery, carrot, parsley, ginger and lemon. Clean, refreshing and just sweet enough. Our hand-me-down juicer has been wonderful, but it’s ready for retirement. Breville is the best!

  33. The first juice I’ll make is one heavy on greens, because I’ve long heard that they’re delicious and I’m unsure of that…need to find out for myself.

  34. The first juice I will make will include: kale, apples, lemon, ginger, carrots, celery, and parsley!!

  35. I know it may not seem that exciting but I really enjoy a simple green juice. It’s tasty and fills me up in the morning. The first juice recipe I would make (and probably the one I would make more often) would be Kris Carr’s daily green juice (cucumbers, kale, sweet pea sprouts, celery stalks, broccoli, green apples, and lemon. I sometimes like to add ginger to it for extra kick.)

  36. I would make the “Sweet & Sour” juice (apple, cucumber, grapefruit, and mint) that you posted on One Green Planet!

  37. I would start off with one of my favorite simple juice recipes – carrots, apples, and a dash of lemon. Super refreshing and perfect for summer! Thanks for the giveaway!

  38. I would make a carrot, apple and pear and basil juice, all courtesy of my own organic garden 😛 yummmy!!! <3

  39. I loved making juice, we used to borrow one from a friend. No longer close enough and now would like to have my own. Our fav was to make crabapple juice. Great! But I would love to try others.

  40. I am going to make kale, carrot, lemon, ginger juice when I win!!!!!!!!

    wait a moment, can this juicer juice wheat grass??? cause if it can then I am going to make a juice of wheat grass, apple, and ginger!!!!!!

    what’s is better than fresh vegetable juice??????

  41. I’m not sure what kind of a smoothie I would make, but definitely something with greens. Ever since I watched the documentary “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” I have been wanting a juicer!

  42. I have always wanted to try a juicer! I have two juices I would live to try. My own version of a v8 vegetable juice without so much darn salt. The other would be a banana berry!

  43. I don’t know exactly since I’ve never had a juicer, but I think it would involve carrots, kale, and apples.

  58. First, my life long love – CARROT JUICE!
    And then on to my new favorites SPINACH Juice and I’d like to experiment with Green oriented vegetable juices using a variety of greens – fused with my first love, Carrots!

  63. I’ve actually just started making green smoothies this summer as a way to get in more greens each day.I’ve never made a juice before, but I’ve been wanting a juicer for awhile. I would probably make a green juice first!

  65. Wow… it’s hard to say. I’m currently doing smoothies (one investment at a time, unfortunately), but really want to start juicing. If I won, I would research blends that would help me “re-set” my body and perhaps help me deal with the inflammation and aches I deal with every day.

  70. Hello

    Hmm I am so thrilled I found this article, have already been thinking about buying myself a juice machine (meant to be a healthier alternative), but just aren’t able to determine which manufacturer is the best to have..? I’m guessing some more posts similar to this is likely to make my choice quite a bit easier.

    Thanks

  71. I will likely make a mixed fruit drink with apples, pineapple, oranges, peaches and whatever else I can find to add. 🙂 Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  74. The first juice I will make will be a kale, lettuce, cucumber, apple, ginger, and parsley, one of my favorite green juice combos!

  76. First juice I will make when I win the juicer is going to be mean & green:
    kale, chard, lemon, ginger, dandelion, and cucumber!

    can’t wait, thank you for the opportunity!!

  77. I love your blog and the drool worthy foods you put together. I’ve made numerous recipes from your blog at home, but have had to save juicing for visits to a friends place.

  78. Btw, too bad you can’t enter the competition from Europe 😉 Although shipping costs would be through the roof probably..

  79. Don’t forget strawberry (with some orange and apple possibly) with mint!! Nice and refreshing, especially nice in summer!

  80. Love this giveaway.

    First thing I’d make? I’d recreate the juice I had in Portland – it has apple, basil, cilantro, and ginger. Sounds odd, but it was AMAZING.

  81. ABC Juice! Apples, beets, and carrots! I really want to make a lot of green juices with leftover stems from smoothies but I would be really excited to make ABC because it’s one of the local favorites that a juicer food cart makes here in Richmond!

  82. OMG, I’ve been looking at juicers all week, and the Breville Plus is at the top of my list. My first juice would be vegetable with kale!

    xo
    kittee

  83. The first juice I would make would definitely have carrots in it, with a little bit of beet.

  84. I am going to make celery juice for a flax seed cracker recipe I want to try, and then I want to try juicing several kinds of sprouts.

  85. A evergreen tree. It’s kale, mint, orange, lemon, ginger, and wheat grass. Can’t wait it’s sooooooo yummie!

  86. Definitely green juice! I started drinking green juice daily two weeks ago. I have a cheap juicer so I’d love to win this one! 😀

  87. The very first juice I would make is a green smoothie! I currently grind my green smoothie in an ordinary blender….its OK, but I know it can be better with a Breville!

  88. I like carrot+apple juice. I’ve never owned a juicer, but there is a local restaurant with a juice bar that I love.

  89. A spinach/banana/pineapple smoothie. I know it sounds gross, but it’s really good & my son will suck those babies down. At 3 yrs old, it’s the only way to get him to eat his spinach! hehe. Thanks.

  90. Definitely Carrot-Mango juice!!! This is such an awesome giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity and congrats to the winner! 🙂 I keep reading about the benefits of juicing and wondering how all to do it.. would love to get into it.

  91. A juicer seems like one of those appliances that you can’t really replace with any other appliance….maybe a blender? I would love to try juicing.

  92. I would make a blend of cucumber, kale, lemon ginger and whatever else my lovely garden or CSA has provided that day :). I would love to win this as my current juicer left behind 4 oz of juice and can’t do greens! I need a Breville!

  93. I have been wanting a juicer for so so long! I’m not sure what my first juice would be. Probably something sweet since I’m a newbie (:

  94. I’ve never juiced before, but I just read about a juice recipe with romaine lettuce, kale, broccoli stems, apples, lemon, and ginger. It sounds so yummy!

  95. my first juice will be beet, pineapple, pear, ginger (just had one of these this morning from one lucky duck – delicious!)

  96. I’d make a fruit juice with some veggies hidden in it. Probably something with strawberry carrot cauliflower. I wouldn’t use green veggies cause I don’t like how they change the color of a smoothie/juice

  97. The first juice I will make will be beet juice with carrot and apple. I read that there is something in beets that helps athletic performance!

  98. My first juice would be: Kale, watercress and lemon! My favorite until my juicer died…. bummer
